Thank you! I'm 26 weeks now, and it still fits!

Hi there and I agree with your comments on the neckline finish. I simply don't think the top looks very RTW with the directions for finishing the neckline as written. I do like your solution!

I actually like the wider loop--it gives the top a whole new look. You look fantastic!

I made this top for my pregnant daughter and it was a winner.

It sounds like a winner-your photo is set to private though. Can you change it so I can peek at your project? :-)
